Markem-Imaje launches white touch dry ink for 5940 G coders

FOLLOWING the launch of the 5940 G Touch Dry high-resolution inkjet coder in 2021, Markem-Imaje has now introduced white Touch Dry ink to market.

The new white ink enables customers to mark on substrates that are black or dark in colour in instances where black ink does not provide sufficient contrast and when light dye-based inks, such as yellow or orange, are not prominent. 

The ink is a pigment-based white Touch Dry hot melt ink for industrial applications. It was developed for printing on film, but can be used on other substrates, such as black film, textiles, non-woven materials, coated corrugate and black reusable plastic containers, subject to testing prior to production line roll-out. 

Greg Kasprzak, marketing team leader at Markem-Imaje, said, “The 5940 G has proven to be a hugely successful coder. This is in no small part thanks to its reliability across a wide spectrum of manufacturing needs, consistently delivering crisp codes on a huge range of secondary packaging, including corrugated.

“With the introduction of this new, white Touch Dry ink, an even greater range of coding applications are available to the end user, particularly where the end material poses challenges because it is dark in colour.”
